Tah Dah!

Here are the pics I promised.

One lovely new scarf to match my new winter coat. I'm loving the curls for fringe, so fun! The left over yarn is slowly becoming a hat. If there is enough yarn left after making the hat I am tempted to add some spirals to the crown. =-DHere's that yarn I purchased for 25% of its regular price at the JCA sale. It is a lovely combination of blues and greys. I have NO idea what it will become. It was just too pretty to pass up!
This is the other yarn I could not resist. I LOVE red. It was 10 skeins of DK 100% Merino for only $20. Could you have passed it up?
I had not clue what this would become either, however, after buying the new Crochet Me book I'm thinking it might become this if I am brave enough! This sweater looks simple and like something I would wear. I'm considering altering the sleeves, though, by adding some lace so that I can raise my arms without revealing too much through the arm holes!
